Not unless you can get someone to dig a hole in the dead of night and shove you in. :twisted:

:cry: Ah, what heartless responses you recieved!! Don't cry my child (though bit late now, several months on...) you can be buried as you wish - see below:

No - there is no requirement to hold a religious funeral service, and there are a number of alternatives. Perhaps a relative or friend could take the service if they feel able to do so. Other Members of the congregation could speak or read verses or poems. The British Humanist Association has a network of officiants who will provide a very personal non-religious ceremony. Ask your Funeral Director for more information or to organise a Humanist ceremony.

Unfortunately you risk rotting in Hell for all eternity though... just thought I'd warn ya!! :wink:
